MIKA as a judge at "THE VOICE" France 2014

Recommended Posts

I need to put an addendum to my report, because I forgot the very essential. I am sure you are all keeping your breath in the wait to know what were his first words when he sat for the first time last night, his official first words of season 4, obviously it had to be something spiritual and all, as we are all going serious now, it is beginning, etc.

 

 

 

So it couldn't be anything else than "arf, I ate too much!!"

So, first recording session, here we go. Every english mistake being offered by me :blush-anim-cl:

 

 

Considering how long you stay up freezing outside - and for the last hour WITHOUT your coat, and how hot it is inside, here is a spoiler alert: this story will probably end up with a massive cold.

 

 

But there is a lot of fun in the middle.

 

I won't talk that much about the candidates, first because they obviously will make it to the television so I'll try to focus on the bits that might end up being cut, and also because none of them especially stayed in my mind (oh I am so sorry to say that when they went outside at the end of the show, I already couln't remember half of them :shocked:). I'd say not all of it is worth mentioning but I'll still put it here before it goes out of my very teeny tiny memory:

 

So, season 4 is up, and Mika will have to get used not to be the king of it anymore. How long did he stay without anyone choosing him when the three others already had at least 2 talents each? Poor guy, we were waiting for someone to choose him as an act of charity xD. "P*tain, 3 d'affilée!" (f**k, three in a row) he just exclaimed after loosing 3 times in a row. Quite a change from last year's first session.

 

Because this year the new attraction is Zazie, and she's quite an attraction indeed. In fact I wasn't worried about her, I knew she was quite smart and knew well what she would be talking about. I also saw one of her shows once and it was almost done like a theater play - she knows how to take the audience with her when she talks. So without a surprise she did the job very well, very good at arguing and all, and seems to be as well fitted for the "weird ones" than Mika. So it was often than both would turn for the same person, and, well... she seems to be able to crush him quite easily :teehee:. Hence him ending the show saying to Nikos, with his child's voice "I don't like her! She's mean! Can't you take her back?"

But truth is, even if they are fighting every five minutes, she and Mika are getting along very well and it easily might be the "new couple" of the show. We ended up with them lying together on the floor, and then with Zazie on Mika's lap, and then Mika on her lap ('heck you're too tall I can't see anything!'). And then as accidents happens in the middle of this mess she ripped appart the button on Mika's jacket and he had to end the show casually maintaining it closed with one hand (after the audience having to guide him because he couldn't find the said button on the floor). (Also at a point he hugged a candidate and ended up with make up on his jacket so basically after only one show the thing is already a mess, good luck with trying to keep it white and in one piece until the end).

She is also very funny and Mika is not the last one to go and play with her. Like at a point (ok, I am fully aware it'll gonna be far less funny without images but still) she tried to convince a talent by getting up, and going near each judge, near Florent saying "he has such a voice, you'll gonna have a complex and won't be able to focus". And then near Jenifer "She is so beautiful, you won't be able to focus". And then near Mika... except he had then sneaked out of his seat and was hiding in its back... "and Mika is... where??" They almost started to run around the seat trying to catch each other and as I said it just seems childish and stupid when said but to see it was funny :aah:.

When she runs out of argument she just says "I don't know what to say so I'm just gonna stop breathing until you choose me". So of course, later when she was arguing too much Mika just went "oh, shut up, just stop breathing please!"

 

And so it was with Zazie that we opened the show as the judge's opening song is one of hers, Rue de la paix. Which they had to do twice because someone f*cked up the lyrics (I give you a clue: it was the tallest one). No complaint from us though, they could have sing it five times if it pleased them, especially considering that we just had to go through more than an hour of Nikos recording lauchings for "the next three years, at least", as he said. So them singing was even more welcomed, if such a thing is possible.

 

 

 

So, from now on it's the "bits that are crossing my mind in a complete mess" extravaganza.

 

Mika probably has in his team the tallest and the smallest talent so far. So he was very happy to go and stand near them, the first one being slightly taller than him and the second arriving at around his hip :aah:.

 

Sister Cristina was a guest tonight, and so Mika was official italian translator again. And again another time for an Italian contestant (except he took a shortcut and just said to her that the others didn't like her. Which wasn't true :aah:). There were also some bits of Arabic and a little intrusion of Japaneese, so I'd say for the other judges he kind of is a giant google translator with legs now. ( and as a hidden bonus track I think we were treated with some bits of portuguese when he came out after the show).

 

At a point a contestant said that she was putting her guts on the table when she sang and obviously he doesn't know this expression and was quite chocked by it, and his revolted "you put your guts on the table???!! urg!" was said in a funny enough way to become one of the quotes of the night. It ended up becoming an argument for Pagny "you put your guts on the table he finds it disgusting I think it's awesome so come with me" and after the candidate was gone Mika was still rambling "I don't like guts and he like guts, that's all..." . Lovely guts story.

 

He keeps yawning without putting his hand, in case you were wondering. And as he was quite tired, it happened a lot. So at a point some in the audience began to tell him hey, your hand, remember? But all he coud hear was people "complaining" and he assumed it was after Zazie, so he asked her what she had done to make us upset before realising it was for him "what, me? whyyyy? what have I done???" (had his answer but it didn't keep him from doing it again :mf_rosetinted:)

 

We have a song in french, going "Melissa métisse d'Ibiza". He came with a new version of it, Melissa becoming Melachi, and managed to get all the judges singing it, before stopping it "ok, we're actually talking about my dog" and then bursted into laugh. And again, it certainly doesn't seem so when reading it but in fact it was ridiculously cute xD.

 

Ok, that really was very random. Sorry.

 

He stayed and chat with fans for a little while after the show ended, which was very nice obviously, going on with the always pleasing "it is so nice to have you all here again, helps a lot", etc. Some sweet 'now go to sleep you lot, goodnight' and he was out of stage.

 

 

And then it was all over, and we were outside chatting nicely, and then this guy just went out of his car and interrupted us, so rude, dunno who that was.

He stayed for a while, was kind and sweet and smiling, made some people very happy, wished us all good night and off he went.

 

And he will probably make even more people very happy when they'll know the answer to the "what about gigs?" question. I think it was Camille who asked, wasn't it? Anyway, the answer looked like it: "soon. And lots. LOTS. Far too much in fact, I don't know if I'm gonna get through this!"

 

(and casual: a song is called Rio in the next album. Yeppa. Also, no Ma Jeunesse )

 

 

As for me: throat hurts runny nose and headache. Still so talended at cold catching. Let's say if a cold can ever be "worth it", this one has to be.

 

Thank you for your detailed and fun report Melyssa!! I enjoyed a lot reading it! You made me courious about the tv show and I'm ready to fight again with my internet connection to watch at least a part of what you described! :huglove:

The news about the album and, most of all, about new gigs made me super happy and super excited! Can't wait!! :mikadas: ...I hope he can be able to survive too! :mikasweat::mikacool:

Thank you Eriko :huglove:

I thought I had posted in this thread last night before I fell asleep , but I can't find that post now, so maybe I only had a dream that I did :doh: or I accidently removed it when trying to edit it :dunno:

Thanks for your reports guys :huglove:

It was such a fun evening :wub2:

I missed the M&G for a few minutes :tears: because we had to drive back my daughter , her boyfriend and his mother home instead of sleeping in Paris :crybaby:

But Mika talked to us after the recording was over :wub2:

It was a dream come true to meet so many fans too :wub2:

I think most of the audience people were Mika fans :naughty:

Now I want to do it again :crybaby:

I hope I can for the battles or the live shows.

I should move to Paris :mf_rosetinted:

Hello MFC :wink2:

 

I just heard on Europe 1, a french information radio, that Mika would replace Louis Bertignac in the next season of "The Voice" in France !

 

What a surprise :teehee::thumb_yello::thumb_yello:

 

Mika is, with no doubt at all, better singer than Louis Bertignac who is a very good musician (in the mythic group Telephone).

 

Good luck to MIKA, hope he will have nice "singers" with him :naughty:

It's official news now, from Mika's Facebook page:

 

"BIG NEWS - we are thrilled to announce that Mika has been confirmed as a judge for the new season of The Voice France! That's right, he'll be in one of the famous red chairs and tasked with finding France's next huge talent.

 

About the new role, Mika says, "I have the honor and pleasure to be a coach in the 3rd season of The Voice. I look forward to working on the show and with three talented judges: Jenifer, Garou and Florent Pagny. More than anything, I'm excited to meet the new talents The Voice will reveal to the public... I will try to stay spontaneous and instinctive in my choices. I am sure that the experience The Voice will fun and rewarding. So see you very soon! MIKA."

 

After the success of the first two seasons, Season 3 pre-hearings are already underway but registration is still open on MYTF1.fr. Stay tuned on TF1 and here for more updates!"

 

I think Mika is the better judge of The Voice of France and of X-Factor Italia... I love him as a singer, writer, coach, judge and so on... He is fantastic! :thumb_yello:

(I am sorry if there still is some * in there, don't know why a million appeared when I copied/pasted. And again sorry for the mistakes. They were already there before copy/paste)

 

Roll on round 2:

 

Let's say it: the star of the night wasn't Zazie anymore. Nor Mika. Nor Jenifer or Florent or even Nikos.

 

Nope, the star was our very welcome new fifth judge. She is quite hairy, and she could bark after the contestants like no one else. Hello Melachi!

We apparently went through a bit of drama with her, it seems that they had lost her during the first break, but the story ended well and he was quite proud to come back on set with her after break 2. Put her on his seat, made her push the buzzer, told us she was «preparing for a bigger role»... Some photograph was trying to take a pic of them standing with a «serious face» on the seat but she kept wanting Mika to hug her (oh yes, I know you can hear the «ooowwww» that came out of the audience as if you were there). She also won't stop yawning without putting her paw in front of her mouth, same master same dog :naughty:.

He then put her on Florent's seat (he still hadn't come back from break), left her there and go back to his place. I am not sure the gift was adequately appreciated when Florent came back xD. (It was funny though, Jenifer was trying to call her, to make her react, and Mel was just staring at her blankly :aah: . She was probably a bit gutted, knowing how instantaneously Mel obbeys to Mika :teehee:). Off she went (after almost falling off the main stage) but as he told us later, we're gonna see her again: from now on she's going everywhere with him.

 

And yes, I am fully aware I just made quite a long opening talking about a dog.

 

For the rest, I'll be honest, it's quite a blur. I think my brain was too full already (told you it was tiny in there). I'd say the atmosphere was a bit different – not in a bad way (neither a good one, just a different one). First they were more relaxed, quite obviously now that the first one is done, and second he interracted a bit less with Zazie and a bit more with Jenifer and Florent tonight (which wasn't that hard as he mostly ignored them on saturday). Also he came back to be the one wining so his confidence went up – I think he won the first two ones against everyone as the four of them had turned. It was Zazie this time who spent half the night with no one coming in her team.

 

Already cutting to randomness, sorry:

 

I don't know if you remember the jungle book thingy from last year, but last night he gave us the 2015 version of it, and this time it is Cinderella's turn: Jenifer and Zazie are the two mean sisters, Florent is Cinderella (:aah:) and he declared himself the white knight, no less!

Later there was also an incursion of the wizard of Oz in a complete mess, as he was trying to convince a contestant by going mad and scaring him :doh:

 

He was also talking far, far too much. He wouldn't stop, and even when he had to talk first and so the three others had to chat after, he still tried to talk again at the end. He even once took the floor without anything to say and ended up with a big silence xD. So the three others kept trying to keep him short and prevent him to talk a second time for every contestant, and I think at a point even the production team came to ask him to keep it short. I think he really didn't care tho :aah: (and also later him and Zazie were scold by producer for chatting to much as the contestants were about to sing so he was on a very chatty mood indeed).

Talking about it, at a point Zazie told the three others the order had changed for them to talk during debrief, and from now on Mika would be the last one to talk. He went on «Ah, finally things are as they should be, and I am the one having the last word!»

 

And ironically chatty boy managed to win a talent with the smallest argumentation ever (meaning no argumentation at all in fact). The guy was using a stage name and Mika asked for his real name, He told him «I can tell you mine if you want mine is Michael Holbrook Penniman»… and the guy answered «yes I knew that». From this point he knew he had won already and litterally said nothing (for once xD) as the other went on trying to win him (all of them had turned). But they could have done everything, the guy still went with Mika without a second thought.

 

As classics go the girls tried to strangle him «let's strangle him softly» "i have a lot of sisters you are not scaring me!" and he engaged a «leg fight» with Jenifer in the middle of the stage, «you know this game where you have to cross your legs with the other person very quickly?» she told us, «well, he's is always loosing! He's terrible at it!»

Jenifer at a point tried to push his buzzer as he was the only one not having turned for a singer yet, but he really didn't want to. They began to fight and their movement just activated the thing and the seat turned, he was gutted! He then had to pretend in front of the singer that he wanted her but found his way to make her not wanting to go with him by being quite mean about the song choice :aah:, and when they turned back he mimed to us «do you see what she has done (Jenifer)? You can testify?» and then passed his thumb on his throat in a «I am gonna cut her head off» way.

 

He almost ended up blind when hair styler lady put some hair spray on his head without warning «*ok wow you could have warned me!».

 

And oh he is back to buzzing with his feet and jumping on the seat by the way. He found a new way to press the button with his shoe by actually removing the shoe and using it as a hammer .

 

A little girl in the audience had a bracelet for him, so he jumped on the stairs, went to her, took his gift and went back on stage. Then people told him he could have at least give her a kiss, so he went up again to kiss her, happy lucky child.

 

At the beginning of the show (so obviously I talk about it last) they sang their opening song again, twice (well twice and a half as a light issue interrupted them). We saw right from this moment that they were quite excited, they were jumping everywhere in the wait of the song to begin, playing child games and running all over the place, and the producer asked the audience to stay calm and quiet but we were behaving, they were the one going bunkers :shun:

 

Also Kendji came to sing, and when commenting Mika made an incidental innuendo, ending with everyone asking him why he would want to show his parties to Kendji and Mika was completely lost, poor thing :aah:

 

I know a lot of other things happened, and it's terrible I can feel them floating in my head but I am unable to reach them. So if anything worth it comes back I'll tell you but for now that's all I can remember clearly enough.

 

 

So end of the show, off we go (he went to see the people on the side). We really didn't expect him to stop at the end as there were a lot of people (and scary people in fact, they kept shouting at him as he was still inside). So it was kind of unexpected to have him standing there all of a sudden, but again that was very sweet of him (by the way he asks everyone to stop feeding him for a while as his suit is already too tight for him XD).

 

That's all for now for round 2. Stay brave, white suit, still 4 rounds to go.

I love the way he's acting there: he's so sweet and funny and totally at ease more than when he's at X Factor.

And Mel :naughty: she makes me smile: she has been trained very well!

His availability with the fans and his kindness leaves me completely speechless :wub2: you can't even imagine how happy I am atm reading all this.

To me it looks like he's exactly the same,maybe just a little more struggle from his part to express his thoughts in a new language,that's all :dunno: Which is normal,his french is much better than his italian :wink2:

Merci beaucoup Melyssa!

I really enjoyed reading your reports, the Mel part is very cute even if I think this show appearances are a bit stressful for her (keeping yawning is a stress signal in dog behaviour).

Anyway I like his chatty mood, I wish I can see it on January but I'm already aware that they will cut far too many funny scenes, to fit the long recording into a few tv shows. So thank you again for your precious reports! :huglove:

She also won't stop yawning

 

I think this show appearances are a bit stressful for her (keeping yawning is a stress signal in dog behaviour).

 

 

Indeed. That is a stress behavior. I've been watching all the featuring-Mel videos this year and I noticed she appeared to be stressed or scared now and again. Sadly most owners (an many many trainers) can't read their dogs emotional states and since some dogs (for instance many golden retriever bitches) undergo stress without any major reaction, they usually end up being dragged in a whole bunch of tough situations.

 

we're gonna see her again: from now on she's going everywhere with him.

Which is utterly sad, for the reason I wrote. He can't say (and even if he learned, he wouldn't be able to watch out for her during messy situations) when she's feeling bad, so he can't make the right choices to protect her or to spare her such distress.

I wonder how long she can endure that before showing some bigger issues. Then he might leave her alone. Of course, she could just go on like that (which is not ok), I suppose we'll see. Has this ever happen before? Has he dragged her around like that for some weeks/months? I know he already took her in M&G and so on (this is when I saw her being in distress), but I wonder if it happened only at times or if she already experienced a whole period of such a life.

 

 

When it comes to the show, this second episode sounds as much fun as the previous one, I'm looking forward to see it.

I completely agree with you, as always when talking about dogs!

I understand his wish to have her with him, (I myself would carry my German shepherd everywhere when we were part of the Rescue Dogs Units but I soon understood that often he wouldn't like to travel that much, even if he liked the work that came after traveling) but I can't stop thinking about Mel's feelings, the only thing I hope is she's not constantly traveling by plane.
